The tour was such an enjoyable experience! Megan entertained all of our questions, and as a Philadelphia native she had a lot of insight into the local culture as well as the historical sights. The tour takes you around many of the sights around Independence Hall and the National Constitutional Center in about 1 1/2 hours. Our group was small (about 10 people) and our tour guide wasn't in a cheesy colonial outfit.

My daughter & I had limited time in Philadelphia & this tour (offered hourly) fit into our day the best. Tour guide Tim was plesant & knowledgeable. The tour walks by a number of sites - you do not go inside. We did go & revisit a couple places. I dont think I would select or recommend this tour.

Thanks for your review of the tour. We do promote that the tour is meant to be an orientation and overview of the sites as we can't go too in depth in 75 minutes, but once you get the lay of the land from our tour and the insight from the live tour guide, we encourage you to always go visit some of the sites that interested you in more depth, as you did.

Our tour guide was very informative and passionate about the city’s history. Be sure to wear comfy shoes as there isn’t a place for you to sit and rest. The day we went was sunny and hot, bring water and a hat or something to give you shade.

The tour company’s website will show you a map of everything covered on the tour. The best part of this was the live commentary from our guide. If you don’t have much time to see the city on your own this is a good alternative. Up close and personal.

We chose this tour because of the great reviews and were hugely disapointed. We joined a group of other three tourists, so there were only five of us in total. The guide told us close to nothing about the history of the USA, and only pointed at certain places of interest and told us the names of people that lived or worked there. We went from one house to another in total silence. Yet when we walked into the Christ Church, we were enchanted by another tour guide telling stories to her group. Unfortunately, our guide rushed us along. It is either a poor script or a poorly trained guide, because there is no luck of history there.
Although listed in the tour description in TripAdvisor, the visit to Independence Hall was not included. Just as well, as we had an excellent guide there on a later (free) tour.
Our advice - look for a better tour company as the history of the place is fascinating.
